A bounty of baby gifts, enough to fill two baskets, marked the occasion of the last first baby of the year born at Three Rivers Hospital. TRH is discontinuing its OB program by April 2020.

BREWSTER – Three Rivers Hospital helped the White family of Carlton welcome a newborn girl just three days into the new year.
Wren Katherine White was born at 4:02 a.m. Friday, Jan. 3. She weighed 7 pounds, 8.5. ounces, and measured 19.75 inches long.
The parents are Kayla and Jesse White. Wren has an older sibling, 2.5-year-old Paxton White.
“We are thankful to all the wonderful staff at Three Rivers!” the family wrote in a statement about their experience at the hospital.
Karen Hurley, RN, the obstetrics team lead at Three Rivers Hospital, said Kayla White opted for a water birth. She was attended by Jennifer West, RN and Erin Cooley, M.D., of Family Health Centers.
Hospital staff, along with Medical Director James Wallace, M.D., presented the family with two gift baskets filled with items donated and purchased by staff, the hospital Board of Commissioners, and the Three Rivers Hospital Foundation. The board donated $60 in cash and the Foundation donated $250, which was used to buy more gifts. An anonymous physician donated a $100 Amazon gift card, as well. Hurley noted that the total value of the baskets was more than $600.
This was the final New Year’s baby at Three Rivers Hospital, which will close its award-winning obstetrics program effective April 1. From that point on, OB services in Okanogan County will be centralized at Mid-Valley Hospital in Omak.
